Pros

There is the opportunity to transfer within departments at the hotel if you are still discovering your ultimate career path. If you already know your ultimate career goal, there are specific paths identified to help you reach those goals. You can move to different hotels around the country or around the world, and they pay relocation costs to do so.

Cons

The hours can be long, and there is stiff competition for the best positions. They are not known to have the best pay scale in the industry, but are known instead as a training ground where you learn the skills necessary to move to another hotel chain with higher pay.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to the career aspirations of new managers, and be prepared to discuss career directions and potential with them.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    It's not as big as other major hotel chains, so there is a real family atmosphere. Everytime you meet someone from Hyatt and tell them what property you work at they ramble off five people they know who work there. I've never met any person working for Hyatt that we didn't know at least or two of the same people.

    Cons

    Because it has less properties than other major chains there aren't as many options for promotions. The compensation seems to be a little less than other companies as well, but the slightly lesser pay is quickly forgotten when you actually enjoying going into work everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Practice putting [guest] service first, don't just say it.
